Chromosome No. 6
Explanation KC204687. Under long day (14.5hr) treatment, this QTL introduced from Koshihikari to Nipponbare increased the days to heading. AB683966(Nipponbare), AB683967(Koshihikari), AB683968(Kasalath). This gene encodes a homolog of Arabidopsis EARLY FLOWERING 3 (ELF3). AB686539(Gimbozu), AB686540(HS276), EF7 encodes an ELF3-like protein. EF7 functions as a floral promoter by repressing Ghd7 expression under both SD and LD conditions. an Ortholog of Arabidopsis EARLY FLOWERING 3. a rice ortholog of Arabidopsis gene for circadian clock component. GO:1900057: positive regulation of leaf senescence.
